I have always been told that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and I am finding that true now that I am older.
I think I am going to need to learn quickly if I am going to survive in this new world of technology.
It seems that I am still trying to learn the computer and they have now given me a smartphone. Last week, my daughter came over with my new thermostat. I had said to her that I needed a new thermostat for my HVAC system. I didn’t have any plans to put in a new thermostat until the old one broke. My daughter brought in a new smart thermostat. She said that I could work the thermostat with my phone, and she put an ‘app’ on my phone, then showed me how to access it. Since I didn’t really understand the smartphone, I knew it was going to be nearly impossible to use it to work the smart thermostat. I finally figured how to adjust the temperature, but now I am having a difficult time trying to figure out how to switch from heating to air conditioning. It seems that no matter what I do, all I am doing is changing the temperature, but my furnace is still running and the air conditioning isn’t. I know that if she had just bought me a thermostat just like my old one, I would not be having this much trouble. Maybe I need to call my daughter and have her come over and explain this thing to me.
